We'll be releasing further details of the Pub2Pub Adventures Space Race in December, so watch this space. Until then, here's a little background:
In 1963, NASA built a mighty telescope on the summit of one of the highest mountains in the Pyrenees. Its purpose? To map the surface of the moon, in preparation for the Apollo landings. Six years later, when Neil Armstrong was piloting the lunar module as it descended to the sea of tranquillity, it was these maps, compiled on a summit of a bleak French mountain a quarter of a million miles away, which enabled him to achieve a safe landing amid the boulders, and transmit those immortal words – ‘the Eagle has landed’.
And to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the moon landings, on July 20th 2019, we’re going to drive there.
All hail The Eagle Rally’s follow-up adventure – The Space Race.
